Did You Know: The ORIGINAL Girl Scout influencer, Juliette Gordon Low was born on October 31, 1860? Let’s celebrate her 160th birthday all month long by inviting new girls, families and adults to join — after all, there’s NO party like a Girl Scout Party!
And who better to explain the excitement and impact of Girl Scouts than our members?! By showing your love for Girl Scouting and extending invitations to girls and adults in your school or neighborhood to join, you’re helping build even more girls of courage, confidence and character, who will make the world a better place. PLUS girls can earn a patch for their efforts. Click here for details.
